Leaflets falsely claim pupils taught masturbation in relationship classes

08/30/2019 | The Guardian

The education secretary, Gavin Williamson, has said all schools will be given support to teach relationship education, after leaflets suggesting that lessons encourage primary school children to masturbate were handed out in London. Other material seen by the BBC said parents “will be questioned on the day of judgment” if they do not challenge the lessons on compulsory relationships education in primary schools in England and relationships and sex education (RSE) in secondary schools from September 2020. The leaflets were distributed by the RSE School Gate Campaign group, which has since removed the claim that infants would be encouraged to masturbate in its literature. New flyers say some teaching resources will introduce words such as masturbation to juniors. This is written in draft teaching guidance for at least one English local authority. Williamson said on Friday : “We shouldn’t be seeing protests outside any schools. We want to make sure all pupils, parents and teachers are able to go to those schools freely without any form of intimidation. We will be there supporting and backing every single school – that’s what we have been doing.
